Reset cells and redisplays visible cells.

- (void)reloadData;


If BrickView doesnt reset visible cells and displays new cells, uses updateData.

- (void)updateData;


  • import BrickView.h
  • implement BrickViewDataSource and BrickViewDelegate's methods
  • register UINib's object with idenfiter for re-use


#import "BrickView.h"

@interface ExampleViewController ()

<BrickViewDataSource, BrickViewDelegate>


@implementation ExampleViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];
    BrickView *brickView = [[BrickView alloc]initWithFrame:self.view.bounds];
    brickView.dataSource = self;
    brickView.delegate = self;

    UINib *nib = [UINib nibWithNibName:@"Cell" bundle:nil];
    [self.brickView registerNib:nib forCellReuseIdentifier:@"Cell"];
    [self.brickView reloadData];

- (CGFloat)brickView:(BrickView *)brickView heightForCellAtIndex:(NSInteger)index
    return 100.;

- (NSInteger)numberOfColumnsInBrickView:(BrickView *)brickView
    return 3;

- (NSInteger)numberOfCellsInBrickView:(BrickView *)brickView
    return [self.list count];

- (BrickViewCell *)brickView:(BrickView *)brickView cellAtIndex:(NSInteger)index
    static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";
    BrickViewCell *cell = [brickView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];

    cell.textLabel.text = @"text";
